On Friday, July 19, 2019, at about 3:46 AM, deputies assigned to the San Jacinto Sheriff’s Station responded to
the intersection of Lyon Avenue and Ramona Blvd. in the City of San Jacinto regarding a major injury traffic
collision. The preliminary investigation revealed a gray, Toyota Corolla was traveling east on Ramona Blvd.
and failed to stop for the posted stop sign at the intersection with Lyon Avenue. The Toyota Corolla collided
with a white, Chevy utilities truck that was traveling north through the intersection. The driver of the Chevy
utilities truck was not injured. The adult male driver and an adult male passenger in the Toyota Corolla
were both transported to Riverside University Health Medical Center in the City of Moreno Valley for treatment.
The passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries. The driver sustained major internal injuries and was rushed into surgery. Preliminarily, alcohol and or drugs did appear to be a factor in this collision. The investigation
is ongoing and any witnesses are encouraged to contact Deputy Cortez at the San Jacinto Station at 951-654-2702.
